The folks at Duany Plater-Zyberk shared some of their process and what they’ve been hearing tonight as the East End Transformation process moved to the Family Resource Center on Jefferson Avenue for the Studio Open House.
TOP: Ideas for the intersection of 25th Street, Nine Mile, and Fairmount Avenue
By all accounts, public participation has been incredibly high for each of the sessions so far (and Mrs.Thompson has apparently been ubiquitous&inspirational :).
There are tons of maps of the area and photos of buildings and streetscapes. Some show distance relationships, others emphasize transportation or infrastructure.
The folks from DPZ are set up at workspaces at both ends of the Family Resource Center.
Ideas of how to handle the oddly shaped lots along Nine Mile Road.
A drawing of the intersection described as “the heart of the community”.
Circles with a 1/4 mile radius; can be walked edge-to-edge in 5 minutes.
What is and what could be.
